Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1774
When she noticed how Luna was not suspicious of her, Charlotte, who was dressed in black, smiled. “That could be easily done, as long as you agree to do something for me.”
Luna narrowed her eyes. “What is it?”
Charlotte calmly picked her cup of coffee and gently took a sip before answering, “You’re now the person in charge of the Landry family. I’m sure you’d be able to get into your mother’s drug warehouse, right?”
With a calm smile on her face and placing her cup down, she continued, “I want to enter your mother’s warehouse to search for a skin-regeneration drug.”
Luna was stunned. She thought that Charlotte would demand one of two things: either to be at a high position at Landry Group or to be reconciled with Jim.
Luna did not expect Charlotte to ask for that. She furrowed her brows and looked at Charlotte, rather surprised.
“Are you sure…that my mother’s warehouse has a drug like that?”
“Yes.” Charlotte sighed and said calmly, “Back when I was with Jim because I was intelligent, I once had the honor to accompany your mother to her warehouse and listen to her introduce the various drugs she has been researching for the past twenty over years. There is a drug there which will cause immense excruciating pain, but it’ll regenerate one’s skin.”
Then, Charlotte took off her sunglasses and mask, showing her burnt face.
The waiter of the cafe passed by coincidentally and screamed in fear before apologizing and running away for her life.
The other customers looked over at Charlotte due to the scream, too. When they saw her face, some exclaimed in shock, some felt sorry for her, while some stood up, paid their bill, and left.
Looking at those people, Charlotte chuckled bitterly. She looked up at Luna and said, “You saw it. Right now, I can’t live a normal life, so…”
Charlotte closed her eyes and let out a long breath.
“I’m willing to go through the excruciating pain if it means getting a new face to continue living.”
Looking at how determined Charlotte’s eyes were and the strange looks from the others, Luna bit her lip and sighed.
If Charlotte only wanted this, Luna could not refuse her. Luna’s face was once ruined, too, and she perfectly understood the pain of not daring to look at herself in the mirror and how she
frightened herself to tears if she ever saw herself in the mirror.
“Thank you so much.” Charlotte looked at Luna, teary-eyed. “I thought you’d refuse my request…”
Charlotte lowered her head and wiped away her tears. “I bumped into Jim the last time. He said it’d be impossible for me, this ugly person, to get back together with him. That’s why I thought…perhaps…if I became pretty again, he’d accept me.”
Luna sighed. She could not help but comfort Charlotte.
It was almost noon when Luna received Jim’s call to head back home for lunch. She bade farewell to Charlotte, turned, and left.
Charlotte remained seated as she watched Luna leave. She smiled maliciously.
When Luna had completely vanished from sight, she gracefully stood up, left the cafe, and went in the car.
At the driver’s seat, Roanne furrowed her brows and asked, “Did she agree to it?”
“Mmh.” Charlotte leaned back in the backseat. She gracefully picked up a mirror and looked at the scars on her face.
Then, she lifted her hand and gently peels the scars away, showing a perfect face.
“She’s as stupid as her mother. Doesn’t she think? It has been six years. How could I have lived with the scars on my face?”
